Irish Whiskey - Single Malt
Redbreast 12yr Pure Pot Still Single Malt Irish Whiskey
This is a Tier 1 score in the Whiskey category. It means the spirit has won the highest recommendation at least once and probably many times.
Redbreast Irish whiskey is a label taht was first launched as a Jameson product specific to whiskey bonders, dwindled, and then enjoyed a rebirth in the 1990s. It is still produced at the Midleton Distillery where Jameson is produced. Their signature distinction is the "pure pot still whiskey," which means it is made in the Irish tradition of eschewing more mass-produced column still distillation. Some describe the product as fuller-bodied with oilier but lighter texture. The whiskeys are aged in a combination of American Oak ex-bourbon casks as well as Spanish sherry casks--a practice common in scotch--that lends an additional color and flavor to the whiskey. As with many Irish whiskeys, it made from a grain bill of malted and un-malted barley, which creates the lighter profile as compared to single-malt whiskey (and why we classify it as a "blend").
Redbreast 12yr Irish Whiskey is the youngest of the triple pot-distillation brand. It was the first of the Rebreast brand to launch and remains a favorite among many amateurs and critics to this day who celebrate it as a pure example of the Irish whiskey craft.
